WTF?

This is a page for trying out typographic conventions.

Links

  • http://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/<entity> (italic)
  • http://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/<entity> (bold)
  • http://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/<entity> (bold italic)
  • http://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/<entity> (css font-family:monospace , fixed width, note it's smaller)
  • http://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/<entity> (tt, should be fixed width)
  • http://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/<entity> (tt, should be fixed width slightly bolder)
  • http://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/<entity> (tt bold)
  • http://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/<entity> (tt italic)


Entities in sentences?

  • An artist is not an artist. (tt)
  • An artist in not an artist. (tt italic)
  • an artist is not an artist (css font-family:monospace , should be fixed width but note it's smaller)

Monospace tests

  • OOOOOO

So, note. font-size:monospace will default (for most sytems) to smaller-than-body-text unless you put in a dummy font-family first. So:

<span style="font-family:mono-workaround, monospace;">Foo</span>
